Año Uña

ANoUNa1

Año Uña (2007), el primer largometraje de Jonás Cuarón —hijo del cineasta mexicano Alfonso Cuarón—, se despega de lo común en una búsqueda experimental de la técnica cinematográfica. La película,  como cualquier otra cinta, se construyó fotografía tras fotografía. Sin embargo, Jonás Cuarón no usó una videocámara para la realización, sino una cámara de fotografía fija con la que tomo personalmente cada imagen.

 La técnica cinematográfica tradicional se vale de la proyección de fotogramas, es decir, de fotografías reproducidas en serie, a una gran velocidad, que nos dan la sensación de movimiento, regalándonos un momento como si se desarrollase efectivamente ante nuestros ojos.  Año Uña consta aproximadamente de cinco mil fotografías tomada por Cuarón entre el año 2004 y 2005.  De las fotografías sin ninguna preparación artificial, se hizo el guión, que resuena como una voz en off a lo largo de las escenas inmóviles, congeladas, en las que se desarrolla la historia. Los momentos y los personajes que aparecen en la cinta—aclara el director al inicio de la proyección— son reales, “sólo la historia es ficción”.

El joven cinesta se dedicó un año entero a poner los reflectores sobre todo lo cotidiano que le rodeaba y puso en fotografía una parte importante de su vida en la que intervienen su novia Eireann Harper —editora y actriz protagonista de Año Uña—, su hermano menor Diego Cataño —protagonista de la misma—, entre otros familiares. Los personajes fotografiados aparecen en variados lugares de la ciudad de México: en el metro y las reflexiones que se pueden lograr de una estación a otra, en microbuses que recorren la enredada ciudad, en las trajineras, también, que flotan en Xochimilco al sonido de los mariachis, de las señoras que venden sus quesadillas, o en un callado salón de la Facultad de Filosofía y Letras, en Ciudad Universitaria.

Año Uña cuenta el romance pasajero entre un chico mexicano de catorce años, Diego (Diego Cataño) y una estudiante estadounidense de veintiún años, Molly (Eireann Harper), que se queda alojada en la casa de una familia mexicana. Él hace todo lo posible para llamar la atención de la extranjera, que foto a foto, momento a momento, comienza a quererlo un poco más. Pero el mensaje que se repite en los momentos esenciales de la cinta es que todo llega a su fin algún día: la vida del abuelo con cáncer,  la diversión en un fin de semana en la playa o en una feria, o una relación amorosa. Y justo porque se terminan en algún momento “son especiales”.

Jonás Cuarón —en este primer proyecto— nos entrega un cine que hay que revisar atentamente; un cine  que se puede hacer con poco presupuesto y en el que las imágenes de una vida personal pueden armarse en una historia como un rompecabezas; una película hecha en casa, un cine hecho en familia.
